Our NHS Charity Reveals New Name and Logo

Date: 01 January 2021

Our official charity is celebrating the start of a new year by relaunching with a new name and logo. 

Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust is the largest provider of community services across the county, supporting more than 9,000 adults and children every single day and is proud to relaunch its charity today – 1 January – as Sussex Community NHS Charity.

Working with, and supported by, communities across the county, the charity raises funds to provide staff, patients and volunteers at the Trust with grants that cover the cost of projects and improvements which go above and beyond what NHS core funding can pay for.

Charity supporters have helped shape the new name and logo, completing surveys and focus groups giving their ideas and suggestions.

The heart in the new logo is formed of three sections, representing the community, the charity and the Trust - all working together to provide excellent healthcare at the heart of the community, the vision of Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust.

Rosie Hemming, Community Fundraising Manager, said:  “We are delighted to launch our new charity logo, an important step in our mission to engage with our communities and the dedicated teams who work for SCFT . The charity exists to fund projects which enhance patient care and make a real difference to the lives of the people we care for and our staff”

Siobhan Melia, Chief Executive of SCFT, added: “For more than 20 years the Trust’s charity has been supporting our patients and staff but it really came into its own during 2020 with the coronavirus pandemic.  Thanks to the generous donations from our communities it was able to fund more than £100,000 worth of projects, directly improving patient care and staff wellbeing.

“I’m pleased we have been able to work with our supporters to refresh the look and feel of the charity, ensuring its in the very best position to continue to support the great work of the Trust for years to come.”
